Moving out of the box
‘Boxed’, a digital series, encourages dancers of Indian origin to explore the space they have been confined to during the pandemic
A 2-minute clip takes you into the cluttered basement of California-based artist Tara Pandeya, who specializes in Kathak and Central Asian dance forms. The camera zooms in on a suitcase from which Pandeya, an artist for Montreal-based entertainment company Cirque du Soleil, emerges suddenly. She uses the limited space around the object for a beautifully choreographed piece, disappearing back into the suitcase at the end of the clip.
